パスワードを覚えないのなら、単に「星」を英語にご翻訳してください。

そのような文章はいかがでしょうか。

でも、ときどき、ある場合にね、「プラネット」も星を正しく訳できるじゃない?

As for the zee/zed thing, I found it amusing that, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, whether it was pronounced "Zee Zee Nine Plural Zee Alpha" or "Zed Zed Nine Plural Zed Alpha" depended on the adaptation (and probably the actor) you were listening to. Douglas Adams himself used "zee".

「パスワードSTARです」 Is how you would say "The password is Star" in 日本語。
「です」 Goes at the end of a sentence。
「パスワード」 Goes at the beginning since we are talking about the password。
「STAR」 Goes after 「パスワード」 Becuase we're talking about what the password is, which in this case is "STAR"
